This is an e-mail that Brock sent around today and it is really amazing and touching how he has taken the fate of these wonderful creatures on as a personal mission and challenge. Please read on and help if you can with your love and donations!
dear sweet yogis,
i know you’ve been hearing alot about the tragedy in the gulf, and i have been doing my best to bring even more awareness to it.
as you probably know by now, endangered turtles are being smothered in oil, sufficated, toxicated, burned alive, and and put at massive risk for extinction.
many of you have heard about my mission to get involved. i really appreciate all the support and encouragement that you have lent me.
mission statement: Event Profile on Facebook
you too can get involved! tomorrow morning, saturday july 3, at 10 am we will be holding an emergency fundraiser at yogis anonymous in santa monica to bring home the bacon, and raise some vibration! i really hope you can join us! yogisanonymous.com if you cant join us in person, we will be streaming the class live to all of you out there in neverneverland. we will have an energetic vinyasactivism yoga practice to channel our bodies, minds, and souls toward positive change. everyone is welcome. please tell everyone you know, bring all your friends, and lets get active. this is what we have been practicing toward all these years. to truly stand up, in the face of tremendous challenge and against great odds, for what is right and respond with steady, calm, and undying strength.
many of you have been asking about how you can donate. i am currently in the process of incorporating with a non profit, so that we can funnel the funds through legal channels, and so that you (big hitter that you are) can get a tax credit for your massive donation! great news! the plan is coming together! i will be available to answer any and all questions tomorrow, and if you cant make it by, you can email me with questions, or your pledge to donate. firstname.lastname@example.org
i cant thank you guys enough for your passion, and your willingness to get involved. yoga can change the world! the yoga community can change the world. especially if we take our practice with us into life.
love, and namaste,
